After spotting Sterre , Camille, Mara and Caitlin, today we are adding one more girl to the list with our favourite faces from Elite Amsterdam! Her name is Floortje, she is 15years old, born and living in De Rijp, the Netherlands. Floortje shines on our spotlight and we fall in love with the mystery look she displays on her photoshoots! What stays behind this pretty young face and her blue eyes? Read more about her great start that Suzanne Pots and Mauro Da Silva gave to her and dive into her world for a bit! Only 15years old, Floortje already took part in something that changed people lives in a good way. There is good in the world and Floortje reminds us that we should share it more often because true happiness comes by making others happy.
Describe yourself with a few words:
I am spontaneous girl with a cheerful and optimistic character.
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies are singing and sports. Especially fitness and snowboarding.
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
One and a half year ago I sent photos to Fresh Model Management. To my surprise, I could go the same week for an interview. I have no experience with other agencies. Mauro Da Silva and Suzanne Pots are fantastic for the girls! I couldn’t wish for a better start.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Yes, very much. I became much more independent and am more conscious about my life. I try to eat as healthy as possible, exercise a lot and get enough sleep.
Are you doing catwalks?
Yes, I do catwalks. I love doing catwalks in a full hall. That really gives me a rush!
Have you dreamed to be a model?
I used to be found every day in the horse stable when I was a little girl. My grandparents had a horse riding school. So it was meant to be that later I would do something with horses. But when I grew older and went to high school my interests changed.
So here I am, from the horse stable to the catwalk.
One thing that you love most about modelling?
Standing in front of the camera.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
My style changed when I started modelling. First I only went to the big stores and now I look also in small boutiques, so I can create a different look. I love fashion because there are so many different and creative choices.
What is your musthave for the season?
A fake fur coat. That would be nice this winter.
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
I love Doutzen! She is so beautiful. After 2 children, she still rocks Victoria Secret.
A fact about you that we don’t know?
What nobody knows about me is that I’m very good in shaving cows (ha-ha). It’s part of a school subject. It’s not favourite subject but my grades are very good. So if modelling doesn’t work, I can always be a farmer.
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
Watching comedy movies with my mum until we cry of laughing and doing things with my friends and family.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get a lot of inspiration from fashion and beauty magazines and internet.
How do you see Life through your eyes?
Try to live as positive as possible. And always look forward. There is no limit!
The things that are worth fighting for are?
I hope as soon as possible to finish my school, to become a fulltime model. This is something that I want very much. And I will do everything to reach my goals.
How do you imagine the future, what does it hold for you?
I see what the future brings me, but above all I hope I stay healthy and be a very happy person.
If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
This summer I went to Uganda with Fresh Model Management for volunteering. We helped to build a pre-school and a playground. People are grateful if you give them a little help. People should be there for each other in case of emergency, illness or poverty to help one another, no matter what colour or what religion you have.
